Quiet

I'm still here....just felt like being quiet for a while.  Not much needle contact lately though I have been getting bits in here and there.  My latest stitching project is below.  As I went to stitch the last letter in the top row, I realized I was off count by one stitch.  All of the alphabet has been frogged and I'm moving forward again.

Thank you for your visit and the inspiration I find on your blogs!  Hopefully, the frog I booted out of here isn't visiting you this week!

Quiet time is okay and do we really need to speak when we have nothing to say?

I hope you get in more needle time, it puts me in my happy place when I can/do!

Vickie said...

I agree. I have been enjoying a bit more quiet time too. I hope the frog STAYS AWAY from you. And me. ;)

That sampler has a very interesting border. Love that part. :-)

Sometimes we're just quiet, it's ok. :)

I haven't posted since April 1st, myself, Jackie!! Just too busy this time of year... Your newest WIP is so pretty and I hope that's the end of the frog's visits :)

Melissa said...

I love this sampler. It's in my to-stitch pile!

Enjoy your quiet. We all need that sometimes.

Tammy said...

Sometimes you just need a break and between work and family, you are a busy lady. Take care and when you feel like it - inspiration will hit!! Hugs.

Candace said...

Well, don't you just hate it when that happens, Jackie! At least you caught it now rather than later ;>) It's going to be a gorgeous stitchery!
Cheers!

Lovely Sampler you're working on, Jackie.

Wish you all a Blessed Easter weekend!

Michele said...

Glad you are back on track! I'll look out for that frog. Sometimes we all need some quiet :-)

Margaret said...

Ugh, I hate when the frog comes to visit. I was ripping my knitting a bit this afternoon so I guess he visits in all forms. lol! Your WIP is looking good!

Carla said...

I'm sorry you had to take it all out. It will be lovely

Sometimes we all need a bit of quiet time :) Lovely stitching and on the plus side the frog can't visit me because I'm not stitching! LOL.

Anne said...

I hope the frog prince has gone for you too Jackie! Begone Frogs!! Beautiful design though and so lucky you have a Good Huswife pattern...they are so rare and very expensive to buy on Ebay. Hugs!

Beautiful stitchery Sampler you've started there Jackie!

Thankfully, you caught that miscount early into the process.

Ugh, sorry you had to pull your work out. It looks like it's going to be a lovely sampler when it is done.

Annie said...

Those frogs can be so annoying! Great pattern and hope it's smooth stitching from here on out. Not unusual to ned a blogging break from time to time.

Sally said...

Sorry to hear about the frog they are a pain! Lovely progress though.

Karoline said...

Lovely sampler, I hope the frog leaves you alone now

Barb said...

Hate frogging but love your stitches

yarnjourney said...

That looks like a fun stitching project. Sorry you had to frog a bit. Your stitching is lovely.

Annette-California said...

Your sampler is looking so pretty Jackie! No more frogs. Glad you made the corrections and moved forward.
Missed you.
love Annette

Brigitte said...

Sarah is such a lovely sampler but sorry that you had to redo the whole alphabet. It's always accompanied by a lot of sighs when this happens, isn't it? But once it's re-done it's a good feeling.
